From the Publisher
This book is a resource for working PHP developers who want to take their skills to the next level. Although it assumes a conceptual familiarity with programming and databases in general, anyone who knows PHP enough to code and maintain small web applications can use this book. We also assume an interest in designing large web sites and general network programming to make full use of this book.
